Now that Jon Stewart has been thrown into the tar pits, I have no idea what the hell is going on in politics, but word around campus is that there's an election happening sometime this year. Not a franchise to miss out on a ham fisted stab at relevance, The Purge franchise is back with a very on-the-nose film titled The Purge: Election Year. Get it?
Three years ago the family and I packed up our things and moved out to the Midwest after working in New York City for close to 13 years. For the first 6 months, I pretty much cried my eyes out every time I thought of pizza, a usable subway system and temperatures above -20° in mid-February. Eventually I got over it, but around this time of year the Mrs. and I still get a little misty when we think about Christmas in the city. Want to know why New York City is still the greatest town in the world? Check out these 7 films that highlight all its beauty, wonder and filth:
Tweeting is all the rage with the kids these days! At least that's what I'm reading on the MyBlogs and whatnot. So I thought I'd breakdown how I would LiveTweet the new Sinister 2 trailer which just hit the tubes.
@JoeBGH - :17
Why are those young kids in tank tops?
@JoeBGH - :30 Wait they sleep in the tank tops? Why don't they have pajamas?
Here we go again. I'll be 100% honest, I watched this trailer while on a conference call so I had it muted and I wasn't 100% paying attention, but I'm going to go out on a limb here and say this doesn't look that awful. I'd go as far as to say it looks somewhat silly. Maybe silly isn't the right word because there's a prison full of inmates being lined up ATM but still, you get my point. Oh and Eric Roberts is in there for some reason. Anyway, look at the trailer for Tom Six's final chapter in the trilogy and look for the full thing in selected theaters and VOD on May 22nd.
Hey guys, remember when we promised you that we'd do another live commentary sometime soon? Well, it turns out that we weren't lying.
That's right, the next BGH Spooktacular will take place on Sunday February 15th, at 7:30 PM EST, and this time around we'll be watching Sharknado 2: The Second One. It's streaming on Netflix right now so that's your easiest way to watch along with us while we get tipsy on illegal moonshine and homemade smack.
(Editor's note: Over the rest of this week and next we'll be rolling out our staff picks for the best in horror from 2014, leading up to the official BGH Best of 2014 list and the Year in Review podcast. Enjoy!)
Next week we're supposed to get into single digits here in the Chicago area. Word around campus is this winter will somehow be worse than last. Keep in mind last year I saw 3 days in a row when the temperature was -20 or lower. I don't really have a point here. Just that my tears will be freezing in the near future.
We all have that one movie we have to watch around the Halloween season, and what better way to enjoy that film than with a nice frothy beer? Boos and Brews chronicles the BGH crew's favorite Halloween-time movies, paired with a delicious beer. Drink up!
